One thought on “Activity of the Week

  1. We do have arranged marriages. Not through an office though, chiefly through friends and relatives.

    In the past, we used to have a professional woman in each area called “Khattaba”. Her main responsibility is to know all the single girls in that area! Groom Family visit her to see if she has any suitable girls 🙂 just like in the movie.

    However, now girls want to meet guys and get to know them better before getting married. People still don’t trust online agencies.

    However, I know a girl who had a scar on her face, honestly it was not nice and no one wanted to get engaged to her. But the girl has really very nice personality. But then one day she knew someone online in another country and they continued to talk online for a while then they got engaged and now they married! Love is love after all.
